SOURCE: Broken tab to hood release cable

Get a long screwdriver and try to release the secondary latch that way. Or if you have small hands reach up under the hood and pull the secondary latch toward the left.

You don't have the proper key. The flip key assembly has a chip in it that lets the car keep running. Use old key assembly. To test put the old ket fob next to the ignition switch and see if it keeps running,

Need to change fuel filter on 97 chevy lumina


Follow the steps care fully

Open the hood and relieve the fuel system pressure. On the fuel rail, right before the first fuel injector, locate the Schrader valve-similar to a tire air valve-on the inlet fuel line. Using a small screwdriver, depress the stem inside the valve while covering the valve with a shop rag to catch the squirt of fuel.

Raise the back of the vehicle using a floor jack and support it safely on jack stands.

Locate the fuel filter along the frame rail-passenger side-of the vehicle, near the fuel tank.

Unplug the quick-connect fuel inlet line on the back of the filter by pressing the lock tabs. Push the connector towards the filter and then pull to disconnect the fuel supply line.

Disconnect the outlet fuel line from the filter-the line going toward the engine-by using a backup wrench to hold the line nut while disconnecting the lock nut on the filter with a tube wrench.

Remove the filter from its mounting bracket and install the new filter in place, making sure the arrow on the side of the filter case points toward the engine.

Install the outlet fuel line. Tight the lock nut finger tight, then hold the fuel line nut with the backup wrench and tight the lock nut with the tube wrench. Make sure not to over tighten the nut to prevent fuel leaks.

Press the fuel supply line fitting against the small tube at the back of the filter until the lock tabs snap in place.

Lower the vehicle, start the engine and check for leaks.

How to change fuel filter on 1999 olds 88 with v6


Locate the fuel filter. One side will unscrew using a 16mm open end wrench on the pipe, and hold the fuel filter with a 20mm wrench, and unscrew. The other side of the filter has quick disconnect fittings. Press the tab ears in and pull the line away from the fuel filter. Be careful, fuel will come out when you disonnect the lines. install in reverse procedure.

Location of fuel filter on 2005 VW convertible


The filter lives under the car near the right rear tire (just in front of it). BE VERY CAREFUL- If you break the quick disconnects on the fuel lines it will cost you a fortune !! $500.00+ to replace the fuel lines. The fuel lines are pressurized so you will need to relieve the pressure before you try and remove the filter or you will get a face full of gas. The filter comes off by pushing the fuel line toward the filter and then pushing the quick release button on the fuel line. The fuel line should then decouple fairly easily. Before you start the car cycle the key on and off 2 or 3 times to refill the filter.

Where is fuel filter located in a kia sportage 2006


The fuel filter is bolted to the frame rail below right of the battery. It is cylinder shaped and has a fuel line at each end.
Procedure for removing it:
Find the fuel tank access plate under the rear seat. With the engine idling disconnect the fuel pump wiring harness and let the engine stall. This relieves the fuel pressure.
The lines on the fuel filter itself are "quick connect" fittings. Depress the tabs on the fuel line and push TOWARDS the filter. The line should pop off. It's difficult to depress the tabs and you CAN use a pair of pliers but be careful or you'll damage the fitting.
Reverse to install new filter. Reconnect fuel pump, start the engine, and check for leaks.

2004 KIA TROUBLE WITH START UP AFTER FILLING UP WITH GAS


The fuel filter may be at the end of it life time and need to be replace. I believe the fuel filter is under the battery bolted to the frame rail. Its a cylinder shape with a fuel line on both end with quick connect fittings. IN the fuse box, remove the fuse to the fuel pump or the fuel pump relay with the engine running, this will depressurize the fuel line. The fuel line on the filter are quick connect fittings, depress the tab's on the fuel line and push towards the filter and the line should just pop off. If you find it to hard to depress the tabs, use a pair of pliers. But be careful not to damage the fuel line. Install the new filter, place fuse or relay back in for the fuel pump. start the engine and look for leaks. If the check engine light came on, disconnect the battery to clear the light, but make sure the radio is turned off before you disconnect the battery for 5 min. Reconnect and everything should be good to go. Hope this helps. keep me posted.
